    I think either way, should be accompanied with the screen protector. But what you yall think about the type of case? Most people I know that have iphones prefer hard cases, but with IPAD, seems like the Silicon case will be easier to handle.

    What you think?

    Hard Case:

    NuGuard Hard Shell Clear Polycarbonate Case... (PADNUGSCLR) at OWC

    Silicon:

    NuGuard Soft Silicone Case for iPad - Blac... (PADNUGSILBK) at OWC

    i went with the hard clear plastic case for the body of the unit along with a Cimo anti glare matte screen protector unit with flip pocket case for stowage in the sling bag for travel

    i figure i got the best of all three words for protecting the ipad when traveling and inuse.

    Hmm.. I haven't decided yet but I'm leaning more towards a silicon style case.

    I clearly don't recommend you the Polycarbonate .. as in no time lot of scratch will appear, silicone is better, or even a decoration film

    I bought the oem case and I think it's very nice. One can cut the cover off if desired to make it an open design. The material is rubber like and smooth. I am very impress with the material and quality.

    Btw,I agree with silicon is a better option when compare to polycarbonate.

    Well with silicon its easier to carry Ipad but by adding case to it will be more protective. There are many cases available in the market these days and also there is option of getting it designed according to your requirements,style and needs.
